Trying for two: Norfolk liveblog 2

Tossin’ it up a little early for the 7:15 start: We’ll be listening to Pete Michaud (audio/pay-per-view). Following Twitter reports from Paul, Pete, the Ads’ official feed and their play-by-play account. The box should be here. Add a second ref, Jason Rollins, whom Bridgeport has seen just once: 50 weeks ago in Norfolk. Prescout here. […] [Read More]

Admirals Liveblog 1: Turn Back the Clock

RT @AdmiralsVoice ‘Turn Back The Clock Night’ with 50-cents dogs, soda & popcorn as @NorfolkAdmirals host @TheSoundTigers 730pm @ Scope. Join us! Come hungry! Bridgeport will be satisfied with turning back the clock to early November (results-wise, at least). We’ll be listening to Pete Michaud (audio/pay-per-view). Following Twitter reports from Paul, Pete, the Ads’ official […] [Read More]

Conacher in, Halmo out: Hartford pregame

No Mike Halmo today — reportedly injured in Friday night’s loss in Wilkes-Barre; hoping for more after the game — so Cory Conacher makes his Bridgeport debut in Halmo’s spot (well, on the right side, from the rushes) with C.J. Stretch and Harry Zolnierczyk. Otherwise similar, though it looks like Justin Courtnall slots back in […] [Read More]

Memory, Wilkes-Barre and Scranton: WBS pregame

Memory is strange. I walked in this morning and said I’d go around the corner to the runway to watch the skate. There’s no runway here, though; that’s in Manchester, where there’s a similar hallway and similar bowels. I was surprised this morning to walk in and find only one banner hanging in the rafters […] [Read More]

Gillies signs/Persson skates/Conacher waived

Finally, Colton Gillies is getting out of the hotel. His PTO would’ve expired tonight, but Gillies has signed an AHL contract to keep him here the rest of the year. “I can settle in now,” Gillies said after the morning skate. “The people (at the hotel) were great, the staff, but you’re definitely not settled […] [Read More]

Day-to-day: Lehigh Valley pregame

John Persson’s upper-body, day-to-day injury off that Oliver Lauridsen hit will keep him out at least this day. He’s expected to be evaluated sometime today. Jason Bast returns for him. Ryan Pulock also returns to Bridgeport’s lineup, assuming nothing crazy happens with the Islanders defense in the next few minutes. He replaces Mark Nemec, with […] [Read More]

“Every child had a pretty good shot”: Allentown liveblog

Sad to miss the first trip to Allentown, where the barn is from all reports gorgeous. We’ll listen to Phil (audio and pay-per-view from AHL Live) and follow Paul, Gary Blockus, Tony Androckitis and Bob Rotruck, among others. Ryan Pulock was sent back to Bridgeport after warmup on the Island today. Not expected in tonight. […] [Read More]

Without Pulock: Hershey liveblog

No roadie for us, but an extra one for Ryan Pulock, called up this afternoon to make seven defensemen with Travis Hamonic on injured reserve. We’ll hang out here and listen to a game with a suddenly thinned-out Bridgeport defense corps — these things change in a day, don’t they? good thing for versatility — […] [Read More]

Big one missing: Providence pregame

No Ryan Pulock, apparently, today. Not-injured is about all we got. Could be precautionary in case the Islanders need/want him. Could be for naught. We’ll see. With Jesse Graham (upper body) hurting, Scooter Vaughan moves back to defense for the first time this year. Sebastian Collberg’s back in for Pulock. BRIDGEPORT F: Collberg-Mouillierat (A)-McDonald Halmo […] [Read More]

One’s out (not that one): Hartford pregame

We went into today’s pregame wondering about Griffin Reinhart’s status. He’s giving it a go tonight, but missing is Johan Sundstrom, injured (lower body) on the overtime penalty kill last night. He and Sebastian Collberg sit out, with John Persson and Justin Courtnall drawing back in. Adam Pelech also goes back in for Jesse Graham. […] [Read More]
